The Fendi SS15 collection boasted clean aesthetics and silhouettes with some bold injections of prints and colors mostly on accessories. In my opinion, the accessories stole the show. The Italian brand impressed on the Milanese runways this season with an array of leather duffels, backpacks and modified fanny packs, executed with a kind of youthful sensibility. Escapism is something that danced around in designer Venturini Fendi’s mind when creating the collection. The idea of escaping and adolescent vibe was punctuated with models taking to the runway wearing Beats by Dre headphones in vivid pop colors as Eric B. & Rakim's "Paid In Full" blared for everyone in the space to hear.
Highlights? Fendi’s Peekaboo bag plastered with totem-video game figures and a black croc bag adorned with a blue stripe. If you’re an urban traveler, love Fendi, sophisticated use of color and have $$ to drop, these bags are for you. You being privy rappers, a handful of bloggers and city-bopping socialites. But for now, sit back and join me in daydreaming about the collection as we jam to Eric B. & Rakim.
